    • The Rebekah Lodge

      Like the United Farm Women of Alberta (UFWA), many women's organizations were offshoots of men's organizations. An example is the Rebekah Lodge, the female counterpart to the fraternal organization, The Oddfellows. The Oddfellows originated centuries ago in England as an offshoot of Free Masonry. It was first made up of mostly craftsmen and newcomers, although it promised not to discriminate against membership according to class and religion. Like many friendly societies of the period, it was based on secret oaths and ritualism that was Christian, although not limited to any one sect.

      With British colonialism, the Oddfellows Order was transported to North America and it was in the United States in the 1880s that women fought and won the right to have their own legitimate body - the Rebekah Lodge. Both orders followed the motto "Friendship, Love and Truth" (the "three links") and made use of secrecy and rituals based on Biblical teachings. The first Oddfellows lodge in Alberta was founded in Calgary in 1884 and the Rebekah followed here in 1907. Soon both orders spread throughout Alberta including many parts of central Alberta, such as Alix and Donalda.

      Both orders were very popular in Alberta because members pledged to help each other out financially and emotionally during times of hardships. Certainly early Alberta was a place of hardship and the group support that the Orders offered appealed to many. They also offered the opportunity for much social bonding. The Lodges, which usually met twice a month, offered their members much-valued "nights out," giving them a chance to catch up with friends and discuss matters of common importance. They also end their meetings with activities, such as suppers, games of bridge, songs, readings and sometimes even dances.

      Rebekah Lodges balance their socializing with community work. Most often, they visit the sick and elderly and help them with tasks that have become too burdensome. They are often responsible for organizing social events for the lodges, preparing the food and organizing seating and entertainment. They have also supported aspects of the women's rights movement, such as the suffrage movement.

      Order of the Eastern Star

      About the Order Of The Eastern Star

      What It Is: The Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternal organization in the world to which both men and women may belong. Worldwide, there are approximately 1 million members under the General Grand Chapter.

      Eastern Star is a social order comprised of persons with spiritual values but it is not a religion. Its appeal rests in the true beauty of the refreshing and character-building lessons that are so sincerely portrayed in its ritualistic work. A deep fraternal bond exists between its members. It is the wholesome relationship of sisterly and brotherly love brought about through high principles exemplified in our lives which makes us near and dear to each other.

      While this is an Order composed of people of deep spiritual convictions, it is open to all faiths, except no faith. The personal welfare of our members is vital to all of those in the Eastern Star and it is considered a privilege to help another member whenever we can. For membership information, click here.

      Purposes. The stated purposes of the organization are: Charitable, Educational, Fraternal and Scientific; but there is much more to it than that. Dr. Rob Morris, the Poet Laureate of Masonry, founded the Order using beautiful and inspiring biblical examples of heroic conduct and moral values. These portray the noble principles which should adorn the personal lives of Eastern Star members. Eastern Star strives to take good people and through uplifting and elevating associations of love and service, and through precept and example, build an Order which is truly dedicated to charity, truth and loving kindness.

      Projects. Concrete evidence of the charitable nature of the organization as it affects others is the millions of dollars which have been raised within the membership to support national, jurisdictional, and local charities. Many Grand Jurisdictions have homes for their senior members.
